According to the History Channel, Giant Pythons capable of swallowing humans and pets whole are slithering their way into and under Florida residences. They're in neighborhoods. They found a huge one dead with an alligator in it. It was ripped open. Being it eats its prey whole it was thought the alligator bit the Python from inside, causing an infection and the python exploded.
Yuck! But if these creatures can devour an alligator, I hate to think what would happen to a person or pet.
